Dear Chip,
	I know very little about this problem; however, I know someone
being treated for Hodgkin's disease who underwent a splenectomy and has
similar concerns about bacterial infections.  Although she had her spleen
throughout her chidlhood, there may be some common aspects to your daugh-
ter's situation.  There may be a Hodgkin's group somewhere on the net
which you could contact profitably.  Good luck.
